ChatGPT 4 to Introduce Video Feature Next Week

ChatGPT 4 is set to launch next week with a new feature that could be both exciting and concerning: video. Currently, ChatGPT and Microsoft’s updated Bing search engine use ChatGPT 3.5 large language models to respond to questions in a human-like way. However, both AI implementations have had their fair share of problems. So, what can we expect from the new version?

According to Andreas Braun, Microsoft Germany’s CTO, the company will introduce GPT 4 next week, which will have multimodal models that offer completely different possibilities, including videos. Braun made the announcement during an event titled ‘AI in Focus – Digital Kickoff’.

While the idea of ChatGPT-powered chatbots being able to reply in other mediums besides plain text is exciting, it also raises concerns. ChatGPT’s early days were marked with some strange and controversial responses that the chatbots gave to users. If we start seeing a similar streak of weirdness with videos, there could be even more concerning repercussions.

Ethics of AI

In a world where AI-generated ‘deepfake’ videos are an increasing concern, the idea of ChatGPT dipping its toes into video creation is worrying. If people could ask ChatGPT to create a video starring a famous person, that celebrity would likely feel violated. While many companies using ChatGPT 4, such as Microsoft, will try to limit or ban pornographic or violent requests, the fact that the ChatGPT code is easily available could mean more unscrupulous users could still abuse it.

There’s also the matter of copyright infringement. AI-generated art has come under close scrutiny over where it is taking its samples from, and this will likely be the case with videos as well. Content creators, directors, and streamers will likely take a dim view of their works being used in AI-generated videos, especially if those videos are controversial or harmful.

AI, especially ChatGPT, which only launched a few months ago, is still in its infancy. While its potential has yet to be fully realized, so too have the moral implications of what it can achieve. So, while Microsoft’s boasts about video coming soon to ChatGPT is impressive and exciting, the company also needs to be careful and make sure both users and original content creators are looked after.
